If you're looking for unique places to submit your writing, I have two suggestions: Mixitini Matrix, edited by poet Leslie LaChance, and Blue Lyra Review, edited by ME Silverman and Nancy Naomi Carlson, among others. Both of these mags break out of the trap of looking for any single style or kind of object.
Mixitini Matrix invites submissions of collaborative art, and of works that traverse genres and media. Translations are considered as well. The current issue holds some collaborative poems created by my sister, Elaine Zimmerman, my friend Barbara (Bogue) Zimmermann, and by me. The magazine is strikingly beautiful to look at, and liberating in its high-energy and tolerance for some purposeful messiness captured on the way to discovery. Leslie LaChance is not only a fine poet, but her letterpress posters are stunning, treasures.
Submission for the next issue begins July 1st. http://www.mixitinimatrix.org/
Blue Lyra Review says in their mission statement that they honor diversity, and that they are especially interested in Jewish writers. I had read online that a friend who submitted work heard back from the editors a few hours later. And indeed, that was my experience as well. I'm delighted to report that ME Silverman accepted a new poem; and Nancy Carlson accepted a translation––both within hours of submission. You don't have to be Jewish, but it couldn't hurt! http://bluelyrareview.com/about/
Blue Lyra is backed up with poems and translations; but they are reading for an August issue on breaking silences––writing secrets, in other words. We've all got those, so don't tarry in submitting to that issue. The editors are kind, smart, and helpful.
All cheers and good luck!
